The premier said that his "thoughts are with the 2,000 people who lost their jobs today, and those who are coping with the devastating consequences of this decision." 

After speaking further about the pipeline and how it's "part of the solution to the energy transition," Kenney said that Biden's move is "not how you treat a friend and ally." 

He said that he will continue to fight for the energy industry and the jobs it will create.
